Decided to purchase a hydro wizard ecm 75 from Germany . I placed the order last night and should get it on 24 th November . I am trying to figure out a way to mechanically move the pump up and down the entire height of the aquarium ( approx 3m) . I have spoken to the elevator 's technician of linking the signal from the elevator to the pump's housing so that when a passenger in the elevator presses the button up or down , the pump will move up and down accordingly so as to create a random motion of waves and hotel's guests become part of the life supporting system of the aquarium. Linking the signal is the easy part but to find a mechanical process of moving the pump under sea water ( very corrosive) is the difficult part .

Only the armature has to be exposed to saltwater. This would have to be mainly of 216 stainless steel for strength to stand up to the pressure of such a large pump but some of the moving parts could be of plastic.

I would be concerned with the aquarium so close to the bed. If it isn't absolutely silent you will be getting up a lot all night long.

Thanks for your suggestions. I do not have much information on 216 stainless as it is not son common in the market but I did some research on 316 stainless which is readily available but it does not seem to bode well in sea water.

Still looking for a space to fit the 100,000 L skimmer but may have to settle with buying two 50,000 L skimmer instead.

I did share the same concern as you about noise and after your suggestion , did have a few words with the architect . However he rest assured me that the noise would be minimal as the Acrylic is very thick (10 cm)and wrapped around by very thick concrete (30 cm). So Sound wave could not come by way of convection as there is no opening and would be very hard to conduct through thick concrete and acrylic. Pumps are also located in another room adjacent to the guest room but is insulated by sound proof materials.

Will help you



This pump is gigantic. Normally producers of pumps label them with the double of flow it indeed afford. But not Panta Rhei, Abyzz or Royal Exclusive. That means that these pumps make the double of the flow than the most others by same liter label.
